jmaley - enjoyed reading your blog. You write like a pro!
The new seats look very comfortable, and the red is so nice. I guess the biggest plus is that your wife can ride longer without her back hurting.

Great idea moving the TV to the dinette area, too. Last week was the first time we turned our seats around, and we haven't used the bedroom TV yet. Hmmmm, ideas!

Thanks for your time... Travel safe - and have fun!

Beautiful seats and happy to hear that your wife is responding well with them! I have the original Teutonic seats and tho they do the job they are typical of German interiors. Spartan and efficient (more of less). They "do" make you sit more upright as per 5IVE2MH, I agree, which is a plus. Push come to shove I'll get a tush cushion down the pike if I have to but wish I could justify the $4 for those beauties! I would like to get a basic swivel plate for the passenger seat later, and now maybe the driver's too since I observed your photo's from the link...swivel's at the very least add two more seating area's, plus couch, when there's a crowd inside? Any idea where I could get the basic
plates for this since you seem to have run the gamut (or, guantlet?)? Good job, nonetheless and kudo's to you and happy your wife can enjoy it more! -PB

There are quite a few sources for aftermarket swivels. I like Eurocampers
Sprinter Seat Swivel Adapters for 2001 - 2015

I think you'd have to get Mercedes swivels from a MB dealer but don't know. New seat boxes, if you wanted shorter ones would almost certainly need to come from MB. I have no idea of the price of either since my Solera had them from the factory.

basic seat swivels...

Understood, and thank you. I "think" (or dreamed?) I saw somewhere on the blog that the basic plate adapters from MB run around...$300, or so? Sounds
high to me so they might be lower per...research time! Cheers!
